35w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green outlined how to survive the Killzone: Mercenary Multiplayer PlayStation Vita Beta below today.

To quote: We're just a few weeks away from the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, but gamers won't have to wait that long to cut their teeth on Mercenary's impressive multiplayer suite.

The team here at Guerrilla Cambridge is expanding the multiplayer beta to give the servers a good test before Mercenary launches on September 10th in North America for PS Vita.

For North American users, the Open Beta for Killzone: Mercenary will be made available to PlayStation Plus subscribers on August 20th (after the Store update).

Divetips: Divekick PS3 and PS Vita Strategies from EVO's Top 3

50°
35w ago - Divekick Creator Adam "Keits" Heart shared some Divekick PS3 and PS Vita divetips strategies with fans today from EVO's Top 3 below.

To quote: Divekick is out on PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday! By now, many of you are starting to realize just how deep and competitive this game really is.

Online ranked play is going to be filled with killers in no time, so to help you get a head start, we've compiled a few tips from the top 3 finishers at EVO 2013. Additionally, we've included a quick character bio for our final fighter, Kenny, to complement our first two roster updates.

5 Tips from EVO Champion Mean Saltine

1. Know your spacing. Every character in the game has a different angle on their divekick. It is critical that you know how close you can get to your opponent without getting kicked in the face. You know you are at the perfect range when you can react to an opponents attack with an attack of your own.

2. Be patient. It might seem natural to go crazy with your divekicks, but it is much more effective to wait for your opponent to make a mistake before you strike. Playing too aggressive is very dangerous against patient opponents!

3. Use your special moves. Every character has two special abilities in the game. Sometimes knowing when...

35w ago - Spiral House Creative Director Kevin Oxland has officially introduced PlayStation Vita Pets on Sony's blog today, confirming the PS Vita title is coming in 2014.

To quote: Hey everyone! My name is Kevin Oxland and I'm creative director at Spiral House. I'm very excited to be here today to finally announce our new game with Sony for the PlayStation Vita. Please welcome PlayStation Vita Pets!

PlayStation Vita Pets is no ordinary pet game! We've done our best to really make this feel like a PlayStation game - with 'game' being the important word there. We set out to make something that was more than just a pet sim - we wanted to make something that felt like a real game, with characters, fun and adventure, so that's exactly what we did.

We also wanted to focus on the dogs themselves, which may seem an obvious thing to say, but making them move, act and speak (!) in a very convincing way for the scope of the game we had in mind, was not easy.





Making humans walk and move realistically in videos games is one thing, but creating truly convincing dogs for today's demanding younger gamers, really is something else. This, we felt, could only be achieved using the power and features of the...

Video: Atomic Ninjas Survival Guide for PS3 and PS Vita Arrives

50°
35w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska shared an Atomic Ninjas Survival Guide video today for PS3 and PS Vita with details below.

To quote: Hi everybody! This is Jakub, from Grip Games. Because the launch of our newest game, Atomic Ninjas, is getting closer, we've created a Survival Guide for you, which will help you get ready for the merciless world we've created.

Those of you who already heard about Atomic Ninjas know that it's quite different from other seemingly similar games... and the rest of you are going to find out from the new trailer below. Atomic Ninjas is a hilarious, fast-paced, 2.5D multiplayer platformer where you cannot directly kill other players.

Instead, you have to push them into various deathtraps, hazards, pitfalls and other general risks to public safety, which we've placed all around the game's seven arenas for your killing pleasure.

This first survival guide trailer gives you three simple rules that will help you become a successful Atomic Ninja.





Rule number one says that you have to be smart and use all the little playthings in the arenas. Traps, moving platforms, air vents, hiding spots... nothing is too malicious in this...
